PayPal button working in installation until after "preview" is hit

    Hi. I have some work I want to get donations for which I copyrighted a year or two ago with the Library of Congress (so I really want and need the PayPal donate button). I've tried numerous times to get it to work, but it works until after I hit "draft" and the "preview" button, and then when I go to look for it, it isn't there on page 3. I can't figure out why. The text box is not the same thing, I guess, as a text widget, but it's the only part that has the visual and html buttons on it. Also, I have a Bing browser and not a Google one, but that so far hasn't prevented me from logging in the long way to WordPress.com and doing any other work, so I don't think that can be it. Also, I don't entirely understand about nested pages, and so don't have page 3 nested into my "About" page (page 2), but it doesn't seem likly that this is the problem either. Any help is appreciated. I even entirely disconnected my old PayPal button (which said "Buy now") from a former website just to make sure the code was "pure." Thanks if you can answer.

    The blog I need help with is creativeshadows.wordpress.com.
